College Days/Job Shadowing Procedures

A college visit is critical when deciding which school to attend. Seniors and juniors may be excused from school to visit a campus during the school day. If students are to be excused for college visits, they will need to bring a note from their parents to the Guidance Office at least one day prior stating that the student is making a college visit. The student will receive a form that the college will complete. (This form needs to be returned to the attendance office for the visit not to count as an absence.)

Job shadowing is a process that can help students make decisions about career opportunities that might be part of their future. Students will contact an individual or an agency and make arrangements to job shadow. The Guidance Office needs a note from the parents at least one day prior including the date and person who is being shadowed. The student will receive a form that needs to be signed by the person being shadowed. (This form needs to be returned to the attendance office for the visit not to count as an absence.)

Juniors and Seniors may take up to 4 days for college visits or job shadowing. Sophomores and Freshmen may take up to 2 days for job shadowing. (Administration may approve more days if deemed necessary.)

Attention Seniors who took CCP!

You will need to request copies of your college transcript/s to be sent to your chosen college or university. This is required to transfer your college credits.

Transcript request pages can be found at the following links:
